We recognize the desires of our clients to achieve an environmentally friendly building that, if they choose, will earn LEED certification. Commercial foodservice facilities are a major consumer of water and energy, so it is imperative green practices extend to this area of the facility.
There are several LEED credits that foodservice can contribute to by reducing water consumption, installing energy-efficient equipment, and implementing other innovative equipment and techniques. Throughout the design process, Cini•Little will incorporate a variety of strategies and will document them to help ease the process of filing for credits. These efforts to earn LEED credits – and to achieve green design beyond the credits – will create sustainable and economical foodservice spaces.
We also look beyond the kitchen and the equipment and work with our clients to incorporate trayless serving lines and composting into their facilities.

American Embassy – Sofia, Bulgaria (CERTIFIED)
ABN AMRO Plaza – Chicago, IL (GOLD)
